Stoney Westmoreland, 48, who appears on the Disney Channel series "Andi Mack" as grandad Henry (Ham) Mack was arrested in Utah on Friday after he allegedly booked a vehicle to meet what he thought was a 13-year-old for sex.

Stoney Westmoreland, who stars in Andi Mack, began communicating with the 13-year-old he matched with on a dating app commonly used for arranging hookups, according to a police affidavit.

The American comedy series, Andi Mack, first aired on the Disney Channel in April 2017 and is now still running.

Westmoreland, 48, allegedly contacted the person that he believed was only 13-years-old through an app, KSL reported.

He allegedly sent the teen pornographic photos and asked the teen to engage in sexual activity and to send him nude photos, according to TMZ.

On Friday, Westmoreland took a ride-sharing service to pick up the person he was communicating with, only to be arrested by the Salt Lake City Police Department and FBI Child Exploitation Task Force.

A statement for Disney confirmed that he has since been fired from the comedy-drama that first premiered in April 2017.

Investigators also report that Westmoreland intended on picking up the minor to bring to his hotel room "in order to engage in sexual activity".

Aside from his Disney Channel role, Stoney has starred in a number of popular TV series, including Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Scandal, NCIS, and Gilmore Girls. "We have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week". A screenwriter and director, as well, he helmed 2018's Golden Boy and featured in films Godzilla and Matchstick Men. Just before her 13th birthday, Andi learns that her older sister, Bex, is actually her mother.
